Simulate a Cam and Valve Assembly (Video Tutorial)

Autodesk Wiki Help Tutorial

In this tutorial, you simulate a cam, valve, and spring mechanism. You determine the
contact forces between the cam and valve, the forces in the spring, and the torque
required to drive the cam.
In addition, you view the simulation results in the Output Grapher, and export the
simulation data to Microsoft Excel.
